A few weeks ago I was asked by KitchenSurfing to photograph a pop up dinner they helped organize with local chefs Samuel Monsour and Mark O’Leary. The idea behind the dinner was to have them present their take on junk food: Fritos with duck, Brussels sprouts, and blue cheese. Handi-snack with foie gras, pear and Campari. A Snickers bar stuffed with chicken liver, viet caramel, and peanuts. And a Filet-O-Fish with crab, uni, and squid ink buns. There were six dishes total, each paired with wine, beer, and cocktails.
There will be more of these “The Future of Junk Food” events throughout the year, so if you’re in the area, I highly recommend checking out one of these memorable dinners.
